Ballast Car Unloader

Manually opening and closing ballast car hopper doors requires the operator to be very close to the ballast car which can be hazardous, slow and awkward. Exposure to silica dust, possible injuries resulting from manual operation of the release levers and walking close by a moving train are just some of the hazards that can be encountered by operators. By installing a Radio Remote Control on the hopper doors, the operator has freedom of movement and is able to work in a safer, more efficient manner.
